6 Dog Grooming Tips While You Are On a Vacation with Your Pet

Who does not want their dog to look their best? But as we invest a bundle of money on grooming for your pooch, consider doing this on your own. Not only it will conserve your hard-earned money, but you can also check their grooming whilst you are on vacation. While you are researching on beautiful places for a vacation with your pup, have a look at their dog grooming tips too.

1) Baby Powder
The easiest way to remove their tangles is by sprinkling baby powder on them. It makes you able to brush tangles out with so much ease. Also, it will make your dog smell good, and do not worry, all baby powders are safe for pets.

2) Flea combs aren’t only meant for fleas
If you have a long-hair dog like Shih Tzu’s or Schnauzers, they might need a flea comb to comb their hair. Not only to eliminate the fleas, but they also make it simple to untangle the hair without causing any pain or discomfort.

3) Trim the paws
It is considered to be uplifting to trim the hair around and in between your dog pads. It makes it simple for you to rub them clean after being outside. If you do not take proper care or their paws, things like burrs or thistles are quickly stuck inside. Your dog will also gain greater traction on slick surfaces without the long hair obstructing their pads.

4) Use appropriate brushes
There are hundreds options when it comes to choices of appropriate brushes according to the length of your dog locks. For short hair dogs, use short toothed brush and a curry comb. For medium -length breeds with undercoat, use Dematting combs and slicker brushes. For Doodle type pets, use a pin brush and a slicker or straight comb. For long hair dogs, use a double rake, straight comb and/or slicker.

5) Use recommended shampoo and conditioner
While on a long travel, the fur of your dog is likely to get dirty. Use an all-natural shampoo and conditioner for dogs, not humans. You can also consult the animal medical practitioner to advise good brands for the same.

6) Rinse your dog well
After applying shampoo and conditioner, rinse your pet well with tepid water. You do not desire your dog to be bothered by the leftover shampoo behind his ears or in other ignored places. Make sure you remove all the shampoo by rinsing the dog well.
